Lower Heat Element in Kenmore Oven

Our lower heat element in our Kenmore Oven burned out and broke. We
ordered a new element. When taking out the old element, we noticed that the left side was not plugged into any wires, just the right side had a wire with an end that slid onto the element. Can anyone tell me if the other side has a wire too? I stuck my finger into the hole, but did not feel a wire??????

Lower oven heating element burned out on my **********0 kenmore range i replaced it but oven still won't work any idea's?


If the element you installed is good , then you do not have your voltage to the element. Thea is because there is an interrupted circuit, maybe an internal iven fuse or your oven breaker in the breaker box in the house

My Kennmore 790.95312300 will not heat up on Bake


If the element tests good, the clock / control is most likely the problem and will need replacing.

The heating element in the lower part of the oven burned. I was almost like a welding rod, it kept burning even when we had the oven off. I turned the power off at the fuse box before it finally stopped....


This sounds more like the electric control dial thermostat, keeping power on at the element, both element and control dial will need replacing

OVEN WANT HEAT PROPERLY FOOD DOSEN'T GET DONE


It could be that your lower element is burnt out or ready to burn out. They last 3-5 years depending how much you use your stove.
Disconnect POWER to the stove, remove the screws holding the lower element to the back of the inside of the stove, pull out carefully and remove the 2 screws holding the wires on. Check the element with an ohm meter or take it to a store that sells replacements ($25) and they may check it for you.

Kenmore electric range - oven temp low and takes forever to heat


if lower element tests open with continuity meter then it for sure is bad. i would also check the wire ends that connect to the element and/or the control board, they could have loosened allowing a bad connection and low voltage to elementor burnt off.. most ovens do not use the broil element at all during the bake cycle, only during the broil cycle.. some however do utilize the broil element during baking, but at a lower wattage or something..
best of luck,

Kenmore oven lower element sporadically heating.


When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.

You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

Lower oven does not work. Ind. light comes on but no heat


It sounds like your heater element is burnt out. Get a volt meter.unplug the stove.take off the back,disconnet one of the wires connected to the element and test it. It should read aproximately 11 ohms if good. if a high or no readind,the element needs replacing.

Oven does not heat up beyond 240 degrees, which takes a long time


You have either a burned our lower element or a wire has burned off at the terminal for that element. The good news is that the lower element is cheaper.

Oven will not heat


Most likely, your lower heating element has failed and needs to be replaced.

This is a simple step-by-step procedure...

1. Turn off the power to the oven at the breaker panel. Or slide the oven ahead and reach behind to unplug the power cord.

2. Take out the two screws holding the element bracket in place. These will be on the back wall of the oven. They are usually hex head or phillips screws.

3. Carefully pull the element toward you a little bit until you see the two wires behind it. Unscrew the wire leads and remove the bad heating element.

4. Handle the new element carefully while you attach the wire leads to it with the old screws. Don't stretch the wires any more than you have to.

5. Line up the new element while tucking the wires back in place. Be sure not to pinch the wires between the bracket and the back wall.

6. Fasten the bracket screws, making sure they're tight.

7. Restore power to the appliance and start your oven to check if the new element heats up.

A few things to remember...

You are working with high voltage! Be sure the power is off or the oven is unplugged!

If you find one of the wires has come off the old element, simply reconnect and check your oven. Your old element may work again and you will not need to purchase a new one.

In removing any of the screws mentioned above, note that they may be difficult to lossen due to years of exposure to heat. Don't give up, they will eventually loosen.

Your new element may have some oil or other gunk on it due to the manufacturing process. Once it begins to heat, it may start to smoke. Don't panic! Any residue will eventually burn away and the smoke will cease from then on.

Good Luck!
